    Arctic Ascent

    Arctic Ascent--4 episode series--with Honnold is worth a look. I saw it on Nat Geo, I think it also streams on Hulu and Disney+. It's not all climbing--about half is about glaciology vis a vis climate change (as if there is any other reason to study glaciers.) They first ascend a 3700 ft wall that Honnold rates 5.11-- X. Watching the show I'd rate it XX for the leader, XXXX for the followers.

    I found the interactions between Mikey and Alex fascinating!
    How often do you see someone telling Alex Honnold he's wrong?

    Hazel Findlay is possibly the best trad climber today ....

    Saw a couple episodes, thought it was mildly interesting. I'll probably watch the whole thing at some point.
